$35.00

Morris West was one of the bestselling Australian authors of the twentieth century. Sometimes compared to Graham Greene, his novels are riveting and immersive with well-rendered prose. He saw major commercial success with The Devil’s Advocate in 1959. He went on to pen numerous novels and plays, succeeding as a bestselling author throughout the rest of the century. In Proteus, Morris West showcases his honed craft in a character-driven novel about John Spada, successful corporate head who secretly funds and manages subversive political movements. It was critically praised at its publication in 1979, and remains one of West’s best (if sometimes overlooked) novels.
